The death toll with this disaster was 21 people, but more than 150 were injured after a molasses tank ruptured. The result was 2.3 million US gallons flooding the area with such force that a train was lifted off the tracks and buildings were destroyed. Such a small thing managed to cause so much damage in a relatively short period of time.
